The Black Prince by kendrin
The Black Prince
This is a render of my cat, Gwydion, who passed away yesterday. He lived from July 1st, 2004, to January 7th, 2016. Best. Cat. Ever.

The image is done in Adobe PS CC using primarily the chalk brush, and a little bit of accenting with a custom brush I made ages ago. Enjoy.
Teddy Bear Castle by kendrin
Teddy Bear Castle
First image of the new year. A doodle I decided to paint out. Obviously, I didn't focus remotely on proper perspective, among many other things. My main focus was playing with colours just for the hell of it. I consider it more in the vein of a storybook illustration than anything else.
Value Study by kendrin
Value Study
This image was created based on an exercise available at…I’m seriously not a fan of the actual headshot we were asked to study. But, for the sake of the exercise, I used it anyway...

This image was created 
in Adobe PS CC and done entirely with the chalk brush from start to finish — including the freckles, which were accomplished by altering the brush settings to include more scattering and jitter. They might be a little light, overall, but I can live with that. (The very clear freckles were purposely placed and didn’t rely on the scatter brush.) 

Actually, I can generally live with all of the imperfections of the piece. I think they add character. And I think the values and proportions are about right (though perhaps the eyes need some tweaking). I like the texture the chalk brush brings.
WIP - Char Concept by kendrin
WIP - Char Concept
This is a quick line sketch of a character concept I'm playing with, which I hope to eventually model in 3D and combine with other characters in 3D-printed figurines.
Drawtober 2015-04 by kendrin
Drawtober 2015-04
I suck at long-term challenges (anything over about 3 days constitutes long-term in my world). Consequently, I'm not doing the full #drawtober2015 challenge. I'm picking and choosing the prompts that interest me and playing with them as I like.

I don't often do landscapes, and I wouldn't call this one a fine example of such a beast. But, it's ok for a block-in/colour-comp, I think. And, that's all I care to do with it, today. So, I'm posting it and filing it under WIP, in case I decide to come back to it, later.

Done entirely in Sketchbook Pro. I think, if I decide to finish and/or polish it, however, I'll import it into Photoshop. I still find PS tools easier to use.
